I love it! Maybe editorial cartooning is a shrinking field in the print media. But Sean Hannity is blazing new trails for the profession! Check out his editorial cartoon. It's an exercise in trite and antiquated metaphor, but how sweet it is to see that Sean realizes the effectiveness of this art. I wish he'd carried it farther and talked about how Fox News and he in particular are the smelly sack of manure that fertilizes his "Liberty Tree." Oh, well. Can't have everything.
